Pochettino helped Tottenham to a hugely dramatic win over City in the 2019 quarter-finals and there’s bound to be plenty of memories of that in the minds of both managers.

City saw off Bourssia Dortmund in the last round while PSG edged out Bayern Munich to set up this final four clash.

City will be hoping to claim an advantage in the tie ahead of the second leg at the Etihad next week.

The winner of this crunch clash will then take on either Real Madrid or Chelsea in the final on May 29.

PSG v Man City: What has been said?

Mauricio Pochettino insists Paris St Germain’s Champions League semi-final against Manchester City is not a personal battle between him and Pep Guardiola.

He said: “It’s not a personal battle, it’s not a personal game. It’s a battle between two very good teams.

“When you talk about Pep Guardiola you are talking about one of the best coaches in the world, if not the best. I admire Pep not only for the titles but the legacy that he is building in football.

“I love being involved in football and trying to learn, to compete and win, but it is a game between two big clubs. It’s not going to be an easy game for either side.”

Pochettino’s Tottenham beat City in dramatic circumstances in the quarter-finals in 2019.

Pochettino said: “There is nothing you can take from two years ago. It was a completely different game, a different approach and different teams. Always we live in the moment and the reality is this is completely different.

“Manchester City today are different and I am in PSG, which is a completely different club to Tottenham.”

Meanwhile, PSG superstar Neymar said: “We are going to do everything in our power to beat Manchester City. I will do everything, professionally speaking, to win this game.

“My main objective is the Champions League and not the Ballon d’Or. That is not my main priority.

“In the future I need to be able to remember that I have won the Champions League once, twice or maybe three times.”
